No-fuss Dame honoured

Te Au O Tonga paramount chief Dame Margaret Karika Ariki doesn’t like being fussed over.

But on Friday the regal chief was the centre of attention as family and friends gathered to help celebrate her 95th birthday. She is pictured with her six month old great grandniece Takau Rose Greig, one of about 100 people who gathered at the Karika palace to share the day with Dame Margaret Karika Ariki.  14121239

    Dear Editor,
    It gives me such pride in seeing the beautiful Dame Margaret Karika Ariki.
    I will be showing this article off to the family.

    My grandmother and Dame Margaret Karika Arikis mother were first
    cousins . May God bless her. On behalf of the Ryan family we send
    . lots of kisses and cuddles and wish our dear Mama a wonderful year.

    Aroa maata
    Anthony Ryan
